Season five of The Masked Singer was hyped as a « groundbreaking season » from the start, with a hint hacking chicken for secret agents (Cluedle Doo, of course) and several surprising wildcard candidates. One of the cornerstones, however, was down to unfortunate circumstances: Host Nick Cannon tested positive for COVID-19 shortly before production started and therefore had to be replaced by Niecy Nash for at least the first four episodes, with no knowledge of when he would be deleted to get back on the set.
Luckily, Niecy, who had previously served as a guest judge on the show, fitted in perfectly. But at the end of the Group B playoffs on Wednesday, it was strange that in yet another game-changing twist, such a new and temporary addition came in as the cast could veto the judges’ votes and decide which candidate will be eliminated – with no explanation for them sudden rule change. In the two years that Nick, who is also the show’s executive producer, hosted The Masked Singer, he never had that supreme authority.
But when Niecy announced she’d decided to go wild -Sending candidate home this week was the bulldog who showed up at the end of the episode to take out New Editions « Candy Girl » in a gold tracksuit, suddenly it all made sense. While the judges suspected that this latest mysterious celebrity might be Andy Samberg, Chris Tucker, Eddie Murphy, or Chris Rock, it turned out that the cosplaying dog was none other than … yep, Nick Cannon, his so far had the greatest and silliest Masked Singer performance.
« I have dedicated my entire performance to you, and you will kick me out? » Nick was joking with Niecy as he removed his gilded dog head. “Niecy, first of all, let me say that I have dedicated my performance to you because you are truly a queen. If during my illness, in a difficult time for me, you can stand up for me and see how you do your thing amazing and shine here, I really thank you. You are a king But you threw me off the damn show! I tried to go all the way, Niecy! «
Nick then admitted that he » had a new respect for all of our masked crusaders, from season one to all of these people on this stage. I never thought I’d be nervous. My heart was beating fast and so! I said, ‘Yo, I’m nervous about performing in front of my people!’ « But the judges were visibly thrilled to see their colleague on the Masked Singer stage again. » I’m so happy! « shouted Robin Thicke .
And so, the order was restored to The Masked Singer – so to speak. Of course, it’s still the craziest and most unpredictable show on television. But let’s try to predict the identities of the four participants in Group B – one of which may be one is a former New Edition member – who will compete against Group A in the Nick Cannon-hosted Super Eight semi-finals.
Covering a Whitney Houston song is not easy, and I can imagine that it it is even more difficult to cover a song by Whitney Houston in a large bird suit. But the Black Swan delivered the feather-light performance of a real pop diva. « Without a doubt she is a front runner, » said judge Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg. Nicole Scherzinger called this songbird the « whole package » and said she « turn it off with these vocals ».
Notes: The Black Swan announced that she was concerned about her appearance being judged at the beginning of her career and therefore sent anonymous audition tapes without photos. She also mentioned a dear deceased friend who had been a singer. The visual cues included three tens (as in a competitive « tens across the board ») and the words « Montana » and « spot ». Earlier clues included mentions of a child’s fame, a battle against show business power, a complex parental relationship, and a « loyal herd. »
My guess: This is former teen pop star JoJo. All the clues from the past are already lined up, but for this week’s clues, JoJo faced America’s most talented kids once (lost to future American Idol runner-up Diana DeGarmo), was originally approached to play Hannah Montana, and supervised a food porn Instagram account called JoJo’s Sweet Spots. JoJo’s life is clearly calling here.
This little pig’s ode to fleeting youth had brought Jenny to tears, and not just because of the adorable and nostalgic Charlotte Web-themed notice pack that preceded it. This was a really sweet and tender accomplishment. “You just touched my heart. I really hope you win this competition « , enthused Jenny.
Notes: Years ago it was » really grilled « and had a » difficult time « , but then » someone unexpected turned his life around « – » before him to save the heat ”and give it a“ brand new start ”. Now he’s a happy family man. The visual cues included two valued dog tags, the abbreviation “1 DR,” and palm trees. The piglet’s unhappy love life has been referred to several times in previous episodes.
My guess: This must be Nick Lachey’s father of three. I swear Not only does the piglet sound like the former 98 Degrees singer (and the grilling / roasting hints are clear references to this boyband’s fiery name), but the backstory about the woman who changed his fortunes is obviously about his wife, Vanessa Lachey – who Nick met on the set of his What’s Left of Me video after breaking up with his first wife, Jessica Simpson.
Last week’s Wild Card debuted with both heartbreaking and heartbreaking rendition from « Ain’t No Sunshine, » but this week his claws came out as he went into bad boy mode on this funky Rick James jam. And that is his prerogative! He was sure to be the king crab tonight. Robin said he « brought the fire », and Nicole loved his « yummy » and « delicious » singing.
Notes: After his performance, he was so overheated and out of breath that he had to take a break, which was due to it indicates that they may be older and / or have health problems. He announced he was a troublemaker as a child, but learned the value of family by cooking with his mother and is an avid cook to this day (we saw him scooping macaroni and cheese in the kitchen). He’s also a huge fan of Sammy Davis Jr. and the song « Mr. Bojangles, » which is why one of his most prized possessions is a Sammy-style bowler hat. Earlier references have referred to several family tragedies and overnight megastardom.
My guess: this must be Bobby Brown, who not only shot up as a teenager and later dealt with terrible losses (the death of two children and his ex-wife Whitney Houston), but also started a food line and learned to do so has a cook from his mother. He also had a song called « Roni », played a « Mr. Bojangles « tribute to Sammy Davis Jr. and struggled with his health. The crab also sounds just like Bobby … and he sounds great! I think he took another small step towards the circle of winners this week.
Nicole raved that the Dead Prez cover of this laid-back lizard was “perfection” and “sounded like a record,” with “prey just dripping off of it.” Jenny, understandably, proclaimed, “We’re in the presence of a giant, massive stars! « This was definitely one of the coolest, grooviest Masked Singer performances I’ve ever seen.
Notes: He’s the father of a » little chameleon, « a martial arts expert, and a huge fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles and hot chicken wings. We also saw clocks, an evasive street sign and a taxi. Last week we saw a lot of fashion / tailor references and a cheese plate.
My guess: The internet has got the chameleon from the first E. pisode as Wiz Khalifa, but apart from the tailor references from last week (Wiz is a member of the « Taylor Gang »), nothing else seemed to turn out for me. But Wiz, who has a young son with Amber Rose who once picked up a Ninja Turtles theme, trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai, had a song called « Chicken With Cheese » … and well, taxis are black and yellow. So after this week’s clues, I don’t have to be a wizard to find out that this is actually the « cheese » wiz himself.
